The forum turned out to be a bit of a failed experiment (I like to think this is because the Facebook page and comments across the site provide all we really need in the way of a forum).  I’ll leave these pages here for a while longer, because some cool people have posted some good information below.  And if you’d like to be the one to resurrect the forum, everything still works — have at it!

I would like to borrow a device to measure grade or steepness of a road in the City of Poughkeepsie- Miller Road, off of Wilbur Boulevard, connecting to Cedar Avenue–

I thought perhaps someone who hikes would have a device or means to measure trail steepness- not necessarily “elevation”, but the angle that the road surface (or hiking trail) rises from the level.

my intent, if someone is willing, is to do this measuring, as well as two other hills near the location I described above, and then I am done- so this would not be “borrowing” for any length of time, not even overnight, so if the person who has this device can just meet me, help me do the calculation, then they are free to go and can take their device with them.


I just found out about this website- good job, Mike Todd!

And if you are wondering about my user name…..
